I'm just going to say that I can't believe that someone would accept this deal. Batista is a top 5 player, and anything less than a first round pick in return is unacceptable, and he should probably get more back than that.

I have to agree with you Jeff this is just a lopsided deal, and Ricky I'd like to hear why you think this is a good return for a regular MVP candidate. In a keeper league why would you give up a sure fire keeper for two players that won't be a keeper next year.

I don't like it either. But it's the best offer I recieved by far. The other offers gave me better players, but at positions I don't need. Moustakas is a top prospect in a keeper league, and Cuddyer has flexibility at 2nd (I've got Ryan Raburn), 1st base (Dunn and Morneau...huge question marks) and outfield (Hamilton, Beltran and Mayberry). Plus he's playing at Coors field now. I've got a solid team outside of those spots. I've spent a lot of time (an embarrassing amount of time) going over every other roster trying to figure out possible trades to fill my team. Everything has been shot down. There is absolutely nobody available in free agency.

If a veto happens, that's cool, but someone better offer me something better. It hasn't happened yet

How do we know who's up for trade? I didn't know Bautista was available.

I'm pretty sure I proposed you Bautista and someone else for Zobrist, Berkman and Bumgarner

I think you should get a higher draft pick back next year for this deal to even it up. The fifth round pick is a little less valuable next year due to keepers, so you are looking at a player in the top 200 range instead of the top 100 that would normally come with a 5th round pick.
